Solving global youth unemployment: Mona Mourshed at TEDxUNPlaza

Mona Mourshed has led engagements across the world in Asia, Europe, South America, the Middle East, and the United States, supporting school systems and vocational higher-education institutions to improve students' skills, their chances of finding jobs, and their day-to-day lives. Her most recent work, focused on youth unemployment, is unlocking the global conundrum of high levels of joblessness among young people and a shortage of job seekers with critical skills. In order to tackle this looming global issue, Mona has assisted in the design, implementation, and reforming of strategies to improve student outcomes in schools; one program nearly doubling literacy rates to 86 percent at the primary-school level in four years.
